Why do Sporting Clubs & Associations need insurance?
As a Sporting Club or Association, you play an important role in maintaining the health and wellbeing of our society. At a time when tablets, video games and streaming services have become the default choice of recreation, your organisation helps to keep the community active, and get outdoors. Unfortunately though, sometimes all it can take is one unhappy client, or a minor mishap at your premises, to quickly make your business lose its game. If incidents like this occur, one strike can be enough to cause significant financial detriment to your financial livelihood. It’s therefore important for you to hold appropriate insurance for your Sporting Club to ensure you can stay in business even if you do experience such unfortunate events.

Public Liability Insurance helps protect your business against third-party claims alleging personal injury or property damage arising out of your business activities. For example, if a client or visitor was to slip and fall while on your business premises, you would look to this policy to cover the claim.1
While these events may seem rare, if they do occur, the financial impacts can be very significant. As a Sporting Club or Association, it is likely that you have significant interaction with clients, therefore Public Liability insurance is a crucial cover to consider for your business, whether that’s at your premises, or out in public.
Business Insurance is designed to protect your business and its assets (including equipment) against certain unexpected events. For example, Business Insurance can include cover for damage to business premises and/or equipment caused by fire, storm, theft and other insured events. Cover is also available for damage to money (if you keep cash on premises), and portable contents such as mobile phones and laptops.
A key part of this policy is Business Interruption cover, which can provide protection for lost revenue in the event your business is unable to operate as usual due to an insured peril.
Business Insurance is made up of a number of coverage sections, and you can choose the sections that relate to your business. Cover is also available for Public Liability.
If you own your own business, you’re likely responsible for making some big decisions. Management liability insurance is designed to cover you and your business against actual or alleged mismanagement of your business.
Management Liability insurance can also help cover Employment Practices claims made against you by current or former Employees.1
Cyber insurance helps protect you against certain cyber related threats, such as unauthorised access to your computer system or network resulting in loss or theft of data.
As a Sporting Club or Association, you may store valuable client data (such as personal details, bank account details and ID documents such as passports and drivers’ licences). When this type of personal information is kept digitally in your care, custody or control, it is important to consider the risks of data and security breaches. Cyber insurance may be worth considering when protecting your business against these risks.1
Cyber insurance has now become one of the essential products a business in the leisure industry should consider.
Product liability insurance is typically included as part of a public liability insurance policy.
Product liability insurance helps protect your business against financial liability for third party injury or damage caused by products sold or supplied through your business.
Public and Products Liability policies can cover legal defence and court costs, assisting your business with the financial setbacks of defending a claim.1
